Memorial Day was initially called Declaration Day. In May 1868, U.S General John A. Logan first called for the observance of Decoration Day nationally:

The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land.
